Oct. 11, 2011 - PRLog -- From wide derrieres and changing bodies to relationships, loss, and fighting for the things we believe in, the “Golden Years” can be filled with challenges, stress, and angst, quite contrary to the idealized vision of the later years of life. First time author, Sharon Phennah handles the reality of these years with humor and tongue-in-check sensibility in her newly released book aptly titled, "You Can’t Iron a Wrinkled Birthday Suit. "

While the novel is fiction and takes the liberty of anthropomorphizing the family pets, Phennah addresses a myriad of real-life forces that are being tackled on a daily basis by the over 55 population. The book is a delightful combination of reality and fantasy that will tickle your funny bone while bringing to light some of the real-life challenges of the AARP generation.

Hazel, Grace, and Gus are long-time friends and residents of Pine Crossing, a typical small town filled with its own parade of interesting and challenging characters and situations. Accepting of each other’s personalities, quirks, and life choices, the women pull each other into escapades, support each other through tough, emotionally draining times, and share laughter and camaraderie as they each learn to deal with their own versions of “what is.”

Visions of gray-haired  grandmothers in rocking chairs aptly fly through the window as Phennah’s characters laugh, cry, fume, scheme, bake, garden, love, deal with loss, and adapt.

Phennah is a graduate of Rutgers with a degree in English, and devoted a lifetime to canine coiffure. Conducting her grooming in clients’ homes, she spent fifty years observing canines and humans in their “natural habitat” and used the goldmine of knowledge she accumulated for writing the book.

Published by BQB Publishing, an independent publisher located in Georgia, the book is available through, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and booksellers throughout the country. It will soon be available in Kindle, Nook, and iBooks as well.
